"Fantastic progess for what is a nasty and complicated injury"

About: City Hospital campus / Trauma and orthopaedics

(as the patient),

I broke my heel last July and have just been discharged from physio a year later. I have been doing physio at The City Campus under the care of Paul Mathews for seven months and have had great support and encouragement.

From not being able to walk to now running regularly, my progress has been fantastic, for what is a nasty and complicated injury. An excellent team and well run department. I am very grateful to everyone involved in my care throughout. many thanks.

The reception staff were also excellent, efficient and pleasant.
